Default Oh so busy after the CHCH quake

This week has been one of the busiest in my life at work, our prison down south is at bursting point, because of the quake in CHCH the prison there is in bad shape, so they shifted over 80 down to our jail, my unit is now full and we have more chch than out own, they are all wanting things asking questions and wanting phone calls to their families, some of them are pain in the arses, but most are now accepting the fact their jail will need re-building or a lot of repair work and they will be with us for some time, we have a couple of them who are hell bent on causing trouble, but they will settle down or we will intervien and sort them out lol. Had to go to work one morning this week at 4am to get ready for their arrival, and once they arrived it was mad.

Hope those in CHCH are ok who frequent this site and may CHCH return to normal asap.
